Description

This Biology Factsheet will explain:
• How we measure genetic diversity by calculating the proportion of polymorphic gene loci.
• How we measure genetic diversity by calculating the heterozygosity index.
• Why a knowledge of genetic diversity is important in the conservation of individual species.
